Hi!

I have windaows XP and an IBM Thinkcentre. I recently bought an nVidia Geforce 7600GS and a 500gb Hard drive. But after adding it all and copying all my data from my old hard drive to my new one there is a weird sound in my headphones. Like I can here the computer processing information when I open a demanding application. All of my firmware and drivers are up to date and the connection is ok.

What do I do (oh and it doesn't matter what speakers I use it happens the same)????

Hello Wombat

Welcome to Free PC Help

This sounds like your hard drive is making the noise here.
Can I just ask why you would have headphones on when opening normal applications, apart from Media player of course?

I don't have headphones on while on things like Word but for Media and Gaming I use headphones or my desktop speakers.

I've found that my mouse lags for a bit then moves jumpily when the sound occurs. I reduced my graphic settings yesterday and found that the sound had nearly totaly gone, but when I turned my PC ojn today with exactly the same graphics settings the same noise and lag happened again.

HELP!!!!!
